Menopause Bundle

Loving the products, particularly the Brain Booster which has really helped clear the brain fog and the Latte Liberate which makes for a nice breakfast smoothie and I’ve not experienced any hot flushes or night sweats since taking this. I was grateful for the first few nights of deep sleep after taking the Spiced Halo but alas it didn’t last and doesn’t dissolve well. I have felt no difference at all with the Bitter Melon. Overall I love the products and will re-purchase the Brain Booster regularly.

Great product

It is a great product. I was surprised to see the 1 star review - it should be removed because that person didnt try it or bother to read the "how to use" before purchasing, so that review does not represent the product.

Glad you're loving the Bitter Melon! We like to be transparent with our reviews and that's why we have left the other one there, but you're right, they didn't try the product as they couldn't use it. Thanks for leaving a review that helps everyone decide if this is the right product for them :)

Latte Liberate

This is one product i can't do without. Sometimes you wonder if these things work or not. Well let me tell you, I went away for nine days, (didn't think 9 days would be a problem) boy was I wrong. To avoid running out i will subscribe. One less thing to worry about, in my busy life

So happy to hear that our Latte Liberate is working for you! Definitely set up a subscription as you'll never run out and you can edit your subscription at any time - PLUS you also save money! Win, Win :)

Amazing

I bought the Hormone and gut starter pack and I’ve only been using it for around 3 weeks and I can feel a difference. I going to the toilet a whole lot better. I feel more energised. The taste is great too.

Sugar content in milk chocolate versus 85% dark chocolate

Sugar content in milk chocolate versus 85% dark chocolate | kulture.store

Did you know that chocolate is good for your health and has a lot of proven health benefits? This well loved treat is popular not just during holidays but all year round - with the industry making $21.1 Billion in sales in 2017. That number is expected to keep growing with the increase in growth expected from premium products and dark chocolate product sales.

Everyonelikeschocolate, most peopleloveit. And why not? It’s delicious! Giving it makes you thoughtful and well liked, receiving it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Eating it gives a tickle to your brain’s pleasure centres that makes you want more.

Or that could just be the sugar talking. You see, there is a big difference between the different major different types of chocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate. One major difference is the sugar content.

Dark chocolate contains less sugar and no dairy

For some milk chocolate arguably tastes much better than dark chocolate. It is sweeter, creamier, and goes down well with no bitter taste. Real dark chocolate, on the other hand, has a slightly bitter taste, however I recommend starting with a 70% dark chocolate before launching into say an 85%. Dark chocolate is made with a high percentage of cacao (which is required to be at the very least, 35% of cocoa solids). It’s also made with very small amounts of sugar and no milk products are required to be added. Perfect if dairy upsets your tummy.

More Cacao, more healthier

Milk chocolate contains less of the original cocoa bean than dark chocolate. It is most often diluted with sugar, cream, and milk solids to achieve that sweet, creamy taste we’ve all come to love. The lower cacao solids content also makes it somewhat less nutritious than its dark counterpart. The cacao solids give chocolate its nutritional edge by containing key compounds such as Phenylethylamine, Flavonoids and Theobromine. So the less cocoa solids it has, the less of these nutritional compounds are available.

Milk chocolate contains more sugar

Milk chocolate has more sugar, thus more carbs and more calories than dark chocolate. 100g of milk chocolate has a whopping 52g of sugar, whereas Lindt 78% dark chocolate has 18g of sugar. The sugar content in milk chocolate vary among brands. Here’s a snapshot of the sugar content of some popular brands:

  • Snickers bar (50g): 6.45 teaspoons of sugar
  • Mars bar (58g): 6.51 teaspoons of sugar
  • Milky Way bar (52.2g): 7.75 teaspoons of sugar
  • Twix bar (57g): 6.12 teaspoons of sugar
  • Milk chocolate M&M's packet (60g): 7.75 teaspoons of sugar


Dark chocolate is simply better for you

Dark chocolate has fewer carbs because it has half the sugar (sometimes not even), and has four times the fibre. A 100-gram bar of dark chocolate with 70–85% cocoa contains: 11 grams of fibre, 67% of the RDI for iron, 58% of the RDI for magnesium, 89% of the RDI for copper, 98% of the RDI for manganese, and has plenty of potassium, phosphorus, zinc, and selenium. It is ultimately better for you than milk chocolate by a long shot.

Not all dark chocolate is equal

If you're looking for a relatively healthy dark chocolate, you can't go past Lindt 70%, 78% or 85%. The sugar content in these are significantly lower than the milk chocolate alternatives. 

  • 70% dark chocolate Lindt (50g): 3.62 teaspoons of sugar
  • 78% dark chocolate Lindt (50g): 2.25 teaspoons of sugar
  • 85% dark chocolate Lindt (50g): 1.37 teaspoons of sugar

Be careful of the Lindt flavours range such as dark chocolate with orange, chilli, sea salt, lime, coconut etc., as these have much higher sugar content of approximately 5.48 teaspoons of sugar which is similar to a Snickers bar.
